I went on a vision board workshop last week. I know they work, I just haven’t allowed myself to do one before. “What if I got it wrong?” “What if I don’t like what I thought I did?” “What if I prove it won’t work for me?” were just a few of the stoppers I found when I stopped to look at what was in my way. Anyone recognise some of those?
So… I went on the workshop anyway and I had so much fun! I just put my head down and got snipping. If you don’t know, A vision board is a visual representation of what you’d like to attract into your life and you can cut words and pictures from magazines that represent how you want your life to be.
I had no idea really, because I’d been very busy not looking closely at how I wanted my life to be. I do it from time to time and mostly I get on with the present moment.
I found myself cutting out pictures of the South Pacific islands and New Zealand. Places I want to go to, lots of them. Yachts sailing in blue waters, past white beaches. It felt great. Then I found myself cutting out houses, or rather gardens with houses attached. Those pictures were much bigger, then I found words that spoke to me, about sharing, growing, creating my dream business, travelling, having fun, above all connecting to people on a deep level.
I started to arrange my cuttings onto my board and found to my surprise that the homes and gardens were the centre. They had to be in the middle of the board as the foundation. Isn’t it amazing what you can learn about yourself and your priorities by doing something like this?
Next came the beaches and the sailing and words like loaf, relax and last came a flurry of words around business, work, what I do. It was so interesting because that’s not the order I would have expected and what was obvious looking at the board was how busy I’d made the work part. No wonder I needed the peaceful home and garden and the holidays where I did nothing! If I create my business as it looked on that board I’ll be too exhausted to enjoy it!
A lot of learning there and I’m planning a new board now, one that shows what feels good and peaceful and interesting and exciting, and without the frenetic energy this board had.
I know I can do it and I know it’ll work too, so it will be good to be clear about what I really want.
It made me wonder what you might be wanting that isn’t what you really want, or that you wouldn’t allow yourself to be comfortable with if you got it and if there was something I could do to help you to get more clear about what’s important to you and to be comfortable and happy when you get it and I decided that now I seem to have mastered webinars it might be good to run a series that focuses on you, rather than helping your clients, (though of course they will benefit from what you learn too.)
So I’m going to run a series of 3 webinars on Money Programs, so that you can clear any old lingering programs that you’ve inherited, or created for yourself, then create new healthy programs that support you creating the life you want honestly, openly and joyfully.
Why Money? Because my experience tells me that it’s our warped views about money and worth that tie us up in knots. When we plan our future, we refer to money all the time. “I won’t have enough money to do that.” ” I don’t know where the money will come from.” ” I don’t want to be greedy.” “What if I get really rich, people won’t like it.” “If I made a lot I could give it all away and run lots of free things.” Do you resonate with any of that? And can you see how it would impact the choices that you are allowing yourself to make?
My feeling is that if we can change the money programs, the habits of thought and feeling that we’re used to, we can change our lives in the way that we want to. We create more choices for ourselves.
I’m looking forward to seeing how that impacts my life and I’d love to help you to do that too.
If you’re ready for an adventure come over to the website and Join me in January, clearing the old and creating new Money Programs that work!
With love from Jaqui
